One of the best things about spring is the imminent arrival of fresh strawberries! As kids, we always had at least one major family mission to go out and pick fresh strawberries at a local pick-your-own farm. We always went with the intention of getting a "reasonable" amount of berries, enough for a pie or two, and some fresh ones to last a week perhaps. We always came home sunburned in streaks (I can only imagine trying to get sunblock on three squirmy excited children itching to run out into the fields), and with at least two full pallets full of berries.
We'd wash them (and test a few, just to make sure they were "still good"), then make fresh pies.
So we were really happy to see this delicious strawberry treasury curated by rsharts on etsy. We love her selections, particularly the summer strawberries photograph (I have that same colander!) by PhotoRebecca, the watercolor painting by rsharts, and the amazing glass strawberries by lunacyglass.
